I am Andreen O'Connor a Jamaican teacher for twenty plus years. I started off as a Vocational education teacher, however, changes in the students population over the years caused the school to be downgraded from All - Age school to Primary. With such a change I had to tap into my "flexibility archive" and conditioned myself to being a Primary Education teacher.
I have developed professionally and have done a "Boys Programme". This was a gender based programme in which I taught the boys to read using self made songs and games about technological devices and equipment that are male orientated. example: vehicles - they sing and play games with names of car parts and the Make of the car. They also do syllabication of these words; and read and watch videos/ Movies of car stories and answer questions about them.
I am presently in the process of commencing My Masters Degree in English language at the University of the West Indies- Open campus.
A part of my aspirations for the future is to become a lecturer in that area.

Hello everyone, my name is Jonathan Lang and I am from Georgia (US). This is my second year of teaching, both in middle grades special education, and my first year as special education lead teacher for our middle and high school. I am currently working on my Masters of Education at Valdosta State University.
As a special education teacher, I am very interested in specially designed instruction, differentiation, and in general, how students learn in different ways. I am also interested in Reality Pedagogy, urban education, and culturally relevant curriculum, and the effect race has on education in general.
My goal, and where I want to end up in education is simple. I just want to be a teacher who empowers students of all races, genders, religions, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
I am looking forward to collaborating with you all.
